|"I Keep Learning As I Grow"|
Wall mounted - 31x22x3"
Some of the leaves are cut out of brass sheet that I had previously etched so that partial phrases "she will", "she knew", "reality", "believe" and "long way around" appear on them. A milagro of a praying figure hangs on the right branch, a cut out nickel hand on the branch next to it, all referring to my process of learning and being a beginner at some new techniques. At the bottom is a medallion I etched that has a symbol of a pyramid on it representing steps taken (hopefully) upward to a better place.
This last Friday I figured out another piece that I'll start putting together soon. More of the marionette-type legs and a little bit bigger ceramic head!
